Day #2256Title: Thy Lock Runneth Over
Location: Rickets Lock, Langford
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: It was another beautiful Spring morning, so I went for a walk along part of the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation which I haven’t previously explored – the area around Rickets Lock between Ulting and Beeleigh. I was surprised just how flooded the lock gates are, even though we’ve not had any really heavy rain for quite a while now – I’ve never seen it pouring over the downstream walls as well as the lock gates themselves. It makes a perfect shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #3 – Once A Month – March (my series this year is based around each of the locks on the C&BN).

The flood waters are still gushing over the lock gates here – and I had some quite deep water to wade across on one of the Permissive Paths to get to the lock in the first place. Once again, although I didn’t need a coat today, I was really glad of my trusty pink wellies. Today’s PAD: Day #2256 […]
